    I didn't have to press for it.  I asked my WC, she said no, so then I went to her boss.  It took me about 48 hours to get it approved.

    No luck for me on getting it added.  Im not really concerned.  Our DJ and photographer are both 'guests' of our anyway.  I would have like the options of using a different furniture company than Zuniga Decor Cancun, but oh well.  I guess I could always work on my onsite WC, maybe she will allow more.

    How did you get in contact with the WC's boss?

      This is the one issue (so far) that drives me nuts about Palace Resorts.  They seem to have no real set policy in place when it comes to anything and everything.  On one hand, it may be good that everything is negotiable, however, it does provide a nuisance that everyone you speak to has a different take on how, when and why things can be done.  Other than the absurdly slow email response time (which I find absurd), this is the biggest issue with Palace Resorts.

          what you could do is bring in a dj as a day guest.  thats what im doing.

            Shelbs, so they are still charging you an outside vendor fee for your DJ, right? Is it $250 or $500? I think I have read it here somewhere but not sure...

              I wouldn't pay MP an outside vendor fee.  Just tell your WC one of your guests is going to DJ, and then pay for a day pass.  That is all that is needed.

                yeah, but they are going to have to set up all their equipment, so I dont think that will work :(
